Forum: prelinger Subject: A question....and a gift.

The Ken Smith montage "Much Better" (http://www.archive.org/movies/details-db.php?collection=prelinger&collectionid=MuchBetter) begins and with a clown like character coming out of a locker saying something like "Looks like they could use my help" he(she?) also appears at the end I was wondering if anyone knows what movie that clip is from?
Oh and for the "gift" part of the title here's something I found on the whole "Duck and Cover" fim mannia, it's a long but a pretty good read.

The clips that open and close "Much Better" is from the infamous "Mr. B Natural" when a strange androgynous thing harrasses a young boy into buying a trombone. Unforutnately, this film was not available in the Prelinger Archives (it came from another collection), but Joel and the Bots from Mystery Science Theater 3000 took the film to task as part of the Volume 6 box set.

I think it was a trumpet. All in all, the MST3K version was hilarious, I recommend getting that one.

Thanx
